You may already have bought all the eyeshadow palettes available or all those lipsticks needed for summer months but did you forget about the important stuff? I’ve done the “I buy all the new Spring makeup” shopping spree but what I really needed got left out! I know it’s not my best move since, if I would have taken my time, I could have saved so many dollars (15% + Ebates). This post is a reminder to do your due diligence before checking out …
If part 1 of my Sephora VIB sale (April 2017) recommendations was all about cruelty-free products that I absolutely ADORE, part 2 is all about makeup brushes, tools and fragrances! In fact, these categories should be our first priority when we shop for the VIB sale. Why? Because in my opinion, the VIB sale should be for the
big BIGGER bucks items.
Here are the products that are a must in my collection, at anytime!
Fragrances (You are warned … I love sweet scents!)
Maybe the fall VIB sale is more appropriate for this category! As some value sets are released just for Christmas time, it is the best time to catch some great deals. Unfortunately, the ones I LOVE are never included in sets. Bummer!
Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanilla Extreme
I’ve own Vanilla Extreme, Vanilla Coco, Vanilla Abricot & my latest, Vanilla Ambre (not available at Sephora) and these are my Holy Grail fragrances. If you like smelling like cupcakes then Vanilla Extreme is for you. This fragrance is to die for; girlie yes, but this is my gem. CoCo, Apricot & Ambre are more subtle if you don’t dig the utterly sweet stuff. Summer must-haves! Don’t want to commit, then try the rollerballs!
If Comptoir Sud Pacifique is too “teenager” for you but you still want that yummy scent then Prada Candy should fit the bill. It’s sweet but in a sophisticated way. BTW, this is the first fragrance that BeardMan ever bought me during our first trip together! It has a special place in my heart ❤️
Sephora Collection Pro Essentials Brush Set 🐰
Sephora recently launch their Collection Pro Essentials Brush Set! My sweet BeardMan (This week is our anniversary and he knows that I have been restraining my makeup spending) bought it and surprised me big time. If you are in need of new brushes then you should literally run (or order online) to buy it during the sale. I’m the first one to be against all brush kits since I find them to be on the cheap side but this is a great deal. You get 11 amazing Pro Brushes for $214Cnd, averaging $19.45Cnd per brush taxes included; at that price, it’s drugstore’s pricing. I already own #90 and it’s the EXACT same top-notch quality …. RUN!!!
Sephora Collection Pro Brushes 🐰
If the set is too pricey, you might have a look at these Pro Brushes. I cannot say enough good things about them. No shedding!
PRO Featherweight Powder Brush #91
PRO Featherweight Complexion Brush #90
PRO Featherweight Crease Brush #38
I swear, since I started double cleansing my face using my Clarisonic as the second step, my acne improved at least 50%. For me, it’s money really well spent! I had my Mia 1 or 2 (don’t remember) for 5 years now and it is still going strong. Best $200Cnd invested on my face! I’ve tried the Foreo Luna but I still prefer my beloved Clarisonic.
Note: The sale is the best time to buy some replacement Brush Heads – I always go for the sensitive ones.
Shiseido Facial Cotton
This is a must!! Once you’ll try these extra soft facial cottons, you won’t EVER go back to the generic ones. Perfection for that fragile eye area. Stock up girlfriends!
